Description - Meeting the Foreign in the Middle Ages by Albrecht Classen

This work is a collection of essays that investigate the fascination, influence, and tolerances of the foreign "other" - non-Europeans, non-whites, non-Christians, gays and lesbians, peoples cast outside the pale, and physically or mentally impaired people - living in or travelling through Europe during the Middle Ages. These figures are explored in the context of medieval literature, arthuriana, historical documents, religious treatises, art, and crusading poems.
